's been in charge of the health care website rollout is the centers for medicaid and medicare services. they released a statement where they said, basically, as we have said, this was a complex project with a short time line. they even went on to say even before the launch they expected there to be some issues. they did not think it was going to be as bad as it ended up becoming. it's interesting you have this pushback, yeah, we knew it was going to be bad, well, these new articles released today by "the post" and "the new york times" really show how bad they were, including detailing a meeting in late august of which the contractor said, look, we cannot provide over 30 services that you originally requested of us within this website. so the government agency in control said, fine, scrap them. let's move forward with what you have. so it shows a systemic culture of failure in regards to healthcare.gov, one that's really plagued this administration and has given a lot of ammo to republicans on capitol hill trying to take down the law. what's interesting, betty, though, is what they come
programs like medicare part d come and the massachusetts help reform that was obamacare's predecessor. most people tend to sign up for coverage closer deadlines, so that is what the administration hopes will vindicate them after the first month, which did not go well. host: but if the deadline is not until march, why were expectations so high to begin with? people do not have to sign up until later. guest: that is right here at march is a key deadline because it is obviously the end of a six-month enrollment period. the other date is december 15, which is when people choose plans if they want them to kick in in january. there are a lot of people losing their coverage right now and they're going to want to remain insured, and for them, the middle of december is the crucial deadline. the reason that that is tough for the administration is it comes only two weeks after the deadline, where they say they're going to have the website fix, which is the end of this month, so if they cannot have healthcare.gov up and running, functioning enough for millions of people to actually buy their health pla

-run system, something like medicare for all. it's appealing but it's very expensive. we couldn't figure out a cost-effective way to provide that. members on the right more conservative leaning in this body wanted to just provide savings accounts which works beautifully for people who have money to save in the account, but for people who live paycheck to paycheck, and there is no money to save, they never get any account to be able to provide for their health insurance. so between those two book ends, we debated for a long time about how to provide a market-based approach for insurance. no mitigation in the world has attempted this, so this is a big effort, but it's an important effort because we are a developed nation, we need to have a healthy work force. it's about as simple as that. you can't be number one in the world, you can't be the strongest economic power in the world if your people are sick and weak. it's just about as simple as that. and you can't be the strongest economic power in the world if your health care system is sapping so much money out of your economic power, 19% of th
, for example. i wasn't here with medicare, but i remember how important it was because at the time that passed, i was the chairman of the board of trustees, an elected position, in nevada of the most extensive -- the biggest hospital district in nevada, lots of beds, lots of patients. so i remember the impact of medicare. but we also know that it didn't become popular overnight. there was a lot of criticism of it. most recently -- not nearly, not nearly as big as obamacare or medicare, but i was here when we passed under the leadership of president bush number 2 the medicare drug benefit. now, a number of us didn't like that. we thought it didn't go far enough and should have been done differently. but it passed this body and became the law of the land. it was difficult to get that up and running. but, mr. president, we did not come to the for that and say, get rid of this bill. we believed, as imperfect as it was, it was the beginning of building support for doing something about health care in america. so i wish that my republican colleagues would do something constructive regarding health c
